Mencken, HL: Europe After 8:15, v1. 28 June 07
A classic of pre World War I days. The "Bard of Baltimore" (he has many other names) pokes fun at the American travelers as they tour the old world. The son of a cigar maker from Baltimore, Mencken is required reading for every school kid in the city (I went to High School there.) Along with Poe they are the twin scions of Baltimore writing.
